Etsy shop feature: ESeas

ESeas is a fairly recent addition to the Etsy #SciArt community, but owner Dr. Elizabeth Sargent has caught the attention of ocean lovers with her remarkable polymer clay creations. Strange deep-sea creatures, hypnotic plankton blooms, and even entire marine ecosystems are brought to life on decorative plates perfect for display or for storing little trinkets.

As a biologist studying phytoplankton and marine ecology, Dr. Sargent brings a wealth of knowledge to her art. Each of her tiny ecological scenes shows key species appropriate to that ecosystem, and both plants and animals alike are cunningly and accurately sculpted.
